This paper describes the process used to conduct the 16 risk assessment panels and a subsistence working group during revision of the Tongass land management plan. Appendix 1, a list of the panel reports and the report of the subsistence working group, is available only online. The complete document is available in pdf format as well as each of the 16 reports. Hard copies may be obtained from the author or from the Documents Coordinator, Records of the Tongass Land Management Plan, USDA Forest Service, Alaska Region, P.O. Box 21628, Juneau, Alaska 99802-1628.
Please note: Because the original reports are no longer available in electronic format, they had to be scanned before conversion to pdf. The scanning created some errors. For example, 2's were replaced by Z's in a few places, 5's with S's, etc.. The most errors occurred in the 1995 report on other terrestrial mammals. The scanning process did not recognize all scientific names; some names are missing, some are incorrect. Please request the hard copies if these errors make the document unusable for you.
